several u.s. lawmakers suggesting bp was involved in, get, this securing the release of a man who blew up a passenger jet over lockerbie; in fact bp officials did tell the british government they were concerned how long it was taking to release the so-called lockerbie bomber. that's according to a bp spokesman. you may remember last year when scotland released a convicted terrorist on compassion grounds after a doctor said he only had a short time to live. well, is he still very much alive. doctors treating him in libya say he could survive for many years you may remember he killed nearly 200 americans in 1988. today a bp spokesman said company officials spoke with the government because as the spokesman put it,. spokesman claims bp was not involved in the release. senators from new york and new jersey are apparently not satisfied with that explanation. the british government turned down their request to investigate al megrahi's release. one of the senators, the democrat frank lautenberg from new jersey wrote in a letter to the committee: as you may know, after they pushed for the release

and just met with general petraeus and other members in the area of kabul. this is very odd for two u.s. service members to go missing and in fact for them to just leave their base in kabul in a separate vehicle without other vehicles following them. many of us trying to figure out answers to these questions that baffled many within the material as well as journalists and as well as the civilian community. >> two soldiers left their base and went missing, and now government officials telling us one is dead and the other is being held by the taliban. atia, a lot of people might be wondering about the other five? there was a separate incident where five were killed. you also spoke about a taliban spokesperson calling you. that might sound strange to some people here in the u.s., but i want you to address the fact that the taliban, that the u.s. fighting there and does have a heck of a pr infrastructure there, and if can you address that for the viewers, and do we note condition of the second soldier now being held? >> reporter: well, when we talk about the condition of the second soldier,

hearts and minds here in pakistan as possible, to close the deficit that exist, and bolster pakistani u.s. relations. there is never going to be any progress or success across the border without the help of pakistan, without pakistan doing more against extremist on this soil. for the u.s., getting pakistan to do more has not always been easy, because anti-sentiments are widespread here and there is a huge deficit between them, and that's why she is here to chip away at the anti-american sentiment. how she plans on doing it is by handing out billions of dollars of u.s. aid approved by the u.s. congress. second clinton is scheduled to unveil a number of programs that are designed to specifically address pakistan's biggest needs. they are an energy shortage, and water shortage, and the economy. t. j., the complaint you often here in pakistan is them saying the u.s. says they want to help, but we don't see the results or the details. tomorrow, secretary of state clinton is scheduled to retail some of the details, like improving on the power grid. and the goal is to get pakistan to do more aga
produces goods at a fraction of the price that we can here in the u.s. in part because of the way it values its currency. peter moricci is an economist and professor. you say that we either get china to play fair or we're headed for a depression. >> absolutely. if china doesn't play fair, there's just not a demand for what americans make. businesses need customers and capital. the customer side, there's just not enough demand for what americans make because we spend so much in china. it undervalues its currency by 40% or 50%. either we're going to grow very slowly or we'll tank. but we're not going to recover quickly enough to get unemployment below 9%. >> for another take, let's turn to richard quest host of cnn quest means business. last year the trade imbalance was $227 billion. that sounds like a gap we need to close, but china produceses goods a lot more cheaply which means folks like me and everyone else in america get to pay less for things. so what's wrong with that? >> jessica, it's very simple. the day you are prepared to pay more for the t-shirt on your back and the shoes on your
shown by an employee at the u.s. department of agriculture. the evidence was a video clip of shirley sherrod speaking at an naacp event this march. at that event she recounts this story. >> the first time i was faced with having a white farmer needing to save his farm, he took a long time talk iing but was trying to show he was superior to me, i knew what he was doing. what he didn't know while he was taking all that time trying to show me he was superior to me was i was trying to decide how much help i was going to give him. i was dealing with the fact that so many black people have lost their farm land and here i was faced with a white person needing to save their land. so i didn't give him the full force of what i could do. >> damning evidence, right? a usda official, a government official admitting on tape to racial discrimination, to withholding government assistance to white farmers, specifically because they're white. stop the presses! within hours of that clip being posted online and billed as evidence of a racist within the obama administration fox news, understanding their
, that if you ask about the state of the u.s. public finances 15 years anow, under current policy it looks pretty grim. so something will have to be done. the question is what about now? and if we skimp on supporting the economy now, first of all, we deepen these problems. we make higher unemployment, we reduce the long-run prospects. secondly, we do amazingly little to improve our long-run budget position. i'll give you a number. suppose we talk about a trillion dollars, more or less, of spending in the next year or two. trillion dollars, the u.s. government can currently borrow, if it issues inflation indexed bonds, it can currently borrow at an interest rate of about 1.7%. so a trillion dollars of spending is going to add to future interest costs only $17 billion a year, with a $2.5 trillion federal revenue base. it's not going to make a significant difference. but it could make all the difference in the world to the state of the economy in the near term. so the arithmetic says that yes -- well, the arithmetic is basically saying oh lord, make me chaste and continent but not yet. yes, l

"fundamentally reform the u.s. tax code." he says, "the u.s. should have a tax system that is simpler," or as the spokesman says -- >> we simplify the tax code by reducing the number of tax rates from the current five rates to four. >> before carrying on -- beyond carrying on the bush economic and tax agenda that worked out so awesome, other marco rubio ideas, "track very closely with what house republicans have proposed this year." things like ending taxes on dividends and capital gains and reforming the alternative minimum tax. taxes is what republicans want to run on. the problem is, they also want to run on against the deficit. >> the american people are saying to us, you're spending too much, you're running up too many debts, and we expect you to do something about it. >> i see no shame in wanting to lower the debt off the backs of our kids. i think that's a good conversation to have with america right now. >> republicans want to be the anti-deficit and anti-debt party right now, but they also want to run on george bush's tax policies. an
else, the largest leak of wartime documents in this country since the vietnam war. more than 90,000 u.s. government documents obtained and posted by the website wikileaks over the weekend. the last time there was a leak of this volume, it precipitated a full-on war between the "new york times" and the nixon white house. it was, of course, the leaking of the pentagon papers during the vietnam war by u.s. military analyst named daniel elsburg back in 1971. the pentagon papers was a touch stone that helped turn the public against vietnam war. the 90,000 plus documents posted by kwikileaks are different than the pentagon papers in that they're snap shots of the war over the last six years, as opposed a top-down study initiated in washington. the wikileaks documents are raw intelligence, threat analysis as seen through the eyes of the soldier fighting the war. as opposed an analytical view of the war from policymakers. in that sense wikileaks is no pentagon papers, but there is a glaring pair lil lel between the two that can't be ignored. these wikileaks documents have been notable in that t
